After seeing a similar ministry in a Baptist & Reflector article, a few ladies from Calvary Hill prayed that the Lord would use them to spread the message of salvation through dolls as well. The talent of sewing and assembling fabrics have enabled a group of women to make dolls that include a witnessing tool–colored beads representing the the good news of Jesus Christ. The dolls have two faces. One side of the doll have a frowning face, symbolizing a person without Jesus. The other side has a smiling face, showing the joy in a believer’s life.
The Doll Ministry ladies meet on most Mondays for prayer and devotion. Afterwards, dolls are handmade and prepared to be sent all over the world with different mission groups. The ministry’s goal is to reach out to as many as possible for the Lord. Hundreds of dolls have traveled to places such as the Bahamas, costa rica, belize, honduras, and the Philippians. The dolls have also been part of Christmas missions to bless less fortunate families. Our local Rescue Squad’s Christmas for Children event and Samaritan’s Purse’s Operation Christmas Child have placed these dolls in the hands of children that our ministry can’t reach alone.
This group of ladies include both members of Calvary Hill, as well as friends from the community. The Doll Ministry began in August 2013 and formed a global reaching circle of sisters in Christ. We are always seeking those with the talent of sewing, stuffing cotton, drawing faces, and braiding hair. Come and join us anytime!
